Our experience with Rule Chains so far has been this: If they run long (for example six hours) they block all your other rules from executing. If the rule chains are more than two hours and you could schedule them that way, it could end up monopolizing your rules and starting an endless delay. You could break the chain (despite what Stevie Knicks says) and order the schedules to use advanced scheduling, that is something we haven't tried yet.

Hi Scotty,

Thanks for your inputs.

     Cron Scheduler for Rule chains is on our roadmap list. The frequency limit is still to be decided. It may or may not be the same 2 hour limit that we have for rules. Will keep you posted as we make progress.
